8. Cuts like a knife....
".....$7 trillion accumulated deficit, or a little over $24,000 for every man, woman and child...."

OMFG! You know though, one can trot out figures like these, but our lazy and fat "consumer society", is up to its butt in debt, just like the government. It makes me wonder, how serious the majority take government debt, given their own individual fiscal irresponsibility? Seems like the only time they do pay attention, is when it somehow directly affects them. In the case of Social Security, the serious problems are several years away, and I fear the sheeple figure that "someone" will "save" them, and Social Security, before they need it....
